  • I have one child still at home and a DH. I cook an evening meal probably 5 out of 7 nights. We have steak, chicken, casseroles, Mexican, Italian, Chinese................sometimes we have sandwiches or hot dogs. I love to cook a big brisket on Sunday afternoon and use the meat for a big Sunday night dinner, beef and beans on Monday, quesadillas on Tuesday.

    Cubed Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, and Chicken (Or Roasted Turkey) Gravy
    Beef Tips and Rice w/Brown Gravy or Beef Tips and Noodles w/Brown Gravy

  • I cook almost every night and I have a 1 year old and a boyfriend. I usually make something good like chicken, spaghetti or roast, but sometimes I just throw in a frozen Oncor dinner and we have that!!

  • I have 4 kids and a husband, and yes, I cook almost every night. On the nights I don't we usually have leftovers (I love to cook big meals so that we have leftovers - I have one weird child who prefers leftover food to fresh). We very rarely eat out - only once every couple of months, if that. I love to cook though, doesn't bother me. Now that it's cooler out, I make a lot of homemade soups, casseroles, meat/potato/veggie meals. I'm definitely not a fancy cook, but I'm good (most of the time).
